All eyes are on LG's forthcoming G3, the company's next flagship phone that's meant to rival the likes of Samsung's dominating Galaxy S5 and HTC's all-metal One M8. If alleged images of the G3 are accurate, LG is jumping on the trend of making gold the coveted color of the year.

The LG G3 looks like it'll carry on LG's new tradition of placing physical buttons on the back panel, just below the camera mount.

If these renders are right, an IR blaster will sit next to the headset jack on the G3's rounded, brushed-finish top.

In addition to shiny gold, the G3 could come in a more traditional dark gray or black...

...and also in white. It's probable that not every market or carrier will see each shade.

Phone Arena's purported press renders corroborate these earlier photos claiming to be the LG G3.

Screenshots point to an updated version of LG's Optimus interface that will layer over Android 4.4 KitKat.

In addition to adopting the "flat" look that's so en vogue, home screen icons in this render change the folder shape of the G2 Pro from squares to circles.

Widgets still have their place, including this one for contacts.

This render of a redesigned notifications tray also adopts circles and shifts around quick-access settings at the top.
